A busy start to 2010!

Hello Everyone!

Welcome to the latest Session A9 news update!

We have had a busy start to the year. It kicked off at the Celtic Connections festival in Glasgow when we were involved in a fantastic project called "A Scottish Songbook". Session A9 were part of the house band in the project which featured fantastic singers from a range of genres covering a great variety of songs from new to old. Great fun was had by all!

Following that we made a return to the festival to play our own concert at the Fruitmarket. The concert was a sell out and it gave us the chance to play some new material we have been working on. We really enjoyed the gig and it was great to have ex Session A9 member, the brilliant Kris Drever who opened the show come up for a couple of numbers.

We then set off on a 2 week tour of the UK. It was great to have such a fantastic turn out for the gigs, especially since many of the gigs were in new places for us! Thanks to all the venues and organisers for putting on the concerts and thanks also to everyone who came out to support them. Hopefully we will see you again sometime soon!

Next we set off for the Shetland Folk Festival at the end of April which looks like it will be a cracker! its the 30th anniversary of the festival so check it out if you havent been there before. Its a great weekend!

We have a good few things planned throughout the year with various festivals at both home and abroad and also we have another extensive tour of the UK in October. Please check the Gig section from time to time to see what we are up too! :)

Until next time!
